What an unlikely but sweet story!
According to TMZ, Lopez floated about
The New York Yankees third baseman has been playing pro for two decades, much of that dominating the sport, with a career 3,070 hits and 2,055 RBIs.
But 2017, the final year of his $275 million 10-year contract, will also mark his last at bat. He told ESPN:
"I won't play after next year. I've really enjoyed my time. For me, it is time for me to go home and be dad."
Awww! Lucky kids!
Interesting note for his final season: with 687 career home runs, the 40-year-old needs only 28 to catch Babe Ruth as third all-time home run leader behind only Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds.
Good luck, A-Rod!

Talk about putting your family first!
Veteran Chicago White Sox designated hitter and first baseman Adam LaRoche just made a MAJOR decision to choose family over work!
Adam is retiring from baseball instead earning $13 million by playing this season!
Normally athletes who step away from a sport do so because of injury, or old age as they just can't keep up anymore.
In LaRoche's case, the 36-year-old has decided to quite because the White Sox asked him to decrease the amount of time he brings his 14-year-old son Drake into the clubhouse!
